Republican plan to empower temporary speaker is 'dead' after 'dismal' meeting: reports [View all]

A plan by House Republicans to empower Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-NC) as temporary speaker of the House was declared "dead" on Thursday.

Republicans considered it during a contentious conference meeting that lasted hours.

"The vibes coming out of the House GOP conference meeting – entering its third hour – are dismal," The New Republic's Grace Segers reported. "Rep. Vern Buchanan just told reporters that, 'reading the room,' a resolution to empower McHenry is 'dead.'"
